Day 3. 3b Health, wellbeing and sustainable urban design


This presentation will discuss how towns and cities will continue to change in
the coming weeks and months in response to the Covid19 crisis. During this
session Howard will draw on David Rudlin, Director of URBED and past Chair of the Academy of Urbanism expertise and work recently completed for the Quality of Life Foundation and on the Government’s National Model Design Code. David will try and find solutions on what needs to be done to promote healthy places which contributes to our quality of life. Also discussing the constraints with current guidance, we often know what good looks like but struggle to achieve it.
By the end of this session, you will know the range of best practices for so-called #Covid19Streets and how these will impact our streets and public spaces. You will find out about the ways in which people move, interact and transact in buildings and urban places. We will also uncover Healthy streets approach – discussing range of resources available that will assist in planning and designing of our necessary green spaces.
